It was an amazing meal. From the appetizers of shrimp and sardines to the main course of penne and the risotto to the dessert of tiramisu and cannoli...it was culinary heaven.

The food was excellent. I loved the place and the people were very friendly, always with a smile. We waited long to be served, it was the only inconvenient. But after receiving the food we forgot about it. Overall, good experience.

We always look forward to our dinners at Al Bacaro. They are always flavourful and freshly made. Last night we had yet another very satisfactory dinner. The rich pasta with truffles was particularly memorable.


The dishes consist mainly of regional specialties which one doesn't often find in other Italian restaurants. Probably due to tourists' requests, ordinary dishes like lasagna, melanzane parmigiana, etc have, however, crept into the menu. A pity that this authentic Italian restaurant isn't as popular as it should be.

Nice atmosphere but the food was cold and not so good. The personnel was not speaking neither good English nor Dutch. I would not advise.

Eating at Al Bacaro has always been pleasant and the food is usually excellent/zeer goed. Our experience last night would have been the same if not for the fact that we had to follow up service a few times last night, despite it being a relatively quiet evening. Furthermore, the Pasta Amatriciana was most disappointing. One of us had ordered it specifically because Eur 2 of the price was supposed to be donated to the victims of the recent earthquake in Amatrice. What was served was a bland pasta without any guanciale and tomato sauce. When we asked the waitress about this when we got the bill, the waitress "apologised" and said that she should have explained that they used the "ancient recipe" which doesn't include these ingredients. We didn't want to spoil an otherwise pleasant evening so we didn't raise a fuss.

Food was very nice, also the service very friendly and prompt, even when the place was quite full. We were in the last table at the end of the place, where you could see the kitchen interior and a door to a back patio. The place could use some maintenance (spiderwebs in the corners, a door-curtain that has probably never been washed and corners that could use a layer of paint). Also the kitchen could be a bit more well kept, special if it can be seen by the guests (check all the items you have on that shelf by the window to the patio.. not the most appealing to the eye). All said, we still had a very nice evening and enjoyed the food and service.

Food was simply amazing, high quality fresh ingredients directly from Italy . Friendly staff, with attention to customers way higher than average dutch standards.
Definitely a pleasant experience, we'll be back again.

We were asked to try this Italian restaurant by some Italian friends. This is a small and unassuming place with a very small menu but delicious meat dishes. The lamb main course was perfect. A good location for a mid-priced great dinner when you do not want to cook at home or order some horrible Italian takeaway/delivery.

WOW. Super duper!
The best rack of lamb I had in my life!
I'm Italian so I'm picky about Italian food, but I strongly recommend this place, the food is deliciously fantastic.
The staff is extremely kind and friendly.

What a beautiful evening we have spent at Al Bacaro.
We were seated (at our request), near the kitchen where we have enjoyed the team work and friendship between the owner and the chef. Amazing.

It is a non pretencious restaurant, warm and it was exactly what we were looking for that night.

The food was delicious and truly enjoyable and the prices reasonable.

We were offered a Limoncello at the end of the evening.

Go back? Absolutely !
